COLOMBO (News 1st); For the second consecutive day, a large number of dogs held captive by two individuals were rescued by activists.
Yesterday News 1st reported a similar incident where a large number of dogs were rescued in Braybrooke Place, Colombo.
Today, the scene was repeated near Rajagiriya, and a group of animal rights activists rescued another set of K9s’, and chaotic scenes ensued.
Yesterday, animal rights activists filed a complaint made to the Slave Island police, noting that the animals were being confined to a garbage cart in deplorable conditions.
The activists pointed out that they took matters into their own hands since authorities failed to intervene.
“They throw the dogs to the lake once they die. After that crocodiles eat them. Today we rescued these dogs. We will give homes to them. Even though we have informed them the authorities did not pay attention,” said one activist.
Speaking to News 1st the activists said that the animals will be taken to a treatment center where they will be cared for.
They said the puppies will be available for adoption for anyone who is willing to nurture and take care of them.
The large number of dogs found with the two individuals has raised many questions amongst concerning factions, including the unproven possibility of them being sold illegally to foreign workers.
